‘Significant’ snow possible today in Fargo-Moorhead

GRAND FORKS – Areas near the North Dakota and South Dakota border into west-central Minnesota could see 5 to 7 inches of snow when an area of low pressure moves into the region today, the National Weather Service says.

The low-pressure system will track from the northern Rockies into the central Plains today, according to the NWS office in Grand Forks.

“As it does, light snow will develop (this) morning and could become heavy at times across portions of southeast North Dakota into west-central Minnesota in the afternoon,” the weather service said on its website.

“At this point, the favored area for the heaviest snowfall will be along the Dakotas border area into west-central Minnesota, where 5 to 7 inches of snow is possible. Lesser amounts will fall to the north and west. The snow should wind down later (this) evening.”
